Kensington Palace has not revealed plans on how Princess Charlotte's birthday will be celebrated, but that is not stopping us from sending her happy birthday wishes! Since it's not like Middleton has her own Instagram and is sharing photos of Charlotte as she grows, this is a rare glimpse into her life as a toddler, and definitely a welcome one.

In celebration of Princess Charlotte's second birthday on May 2, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge released a sweet portrait of their daughter.

Charlotte's first birthday was marked with the release of four official photographs by her parents, and royal fans will be hoping more will be issued for the second birthday.

The photo shows Charlotte looking adorable in a yellow-knitted cardigan accented with little, blue, embroidered sheep around the collar. She's the spitting image of her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, who is Britain's current monarch. The Duchess, a skilled photographer who is responsible for many of her family's most memorable images, captured her daughter outside their home in Anmer Hall in Norfolk, England.

In January, Kensington Palace announced the Cambridge's would be relocating back to London as they undertake more official engagements on behalf of the Queen.

After a day filled with frenzied excitement in the press and across the world, Princess Charlotte was swiftly introduced to the world less than 10 hours after her birth, attending her first photo call with her parents on the hospital steps.
